It's been about 2 weeks since I got serious about this challenge. Which challenge? Spritied Underdogs or the lifetime weight loss/weight gain/exercise/stay healthy challenge? Well both actually. I'd certainly like to keep this going--boy d... Read more
Eating slower?
Friday, March 08, 2013      4 comments

Is it possible? Do I think I can ever eat slower? Well I need to start now. So I'm recording the time I start and end my meals. We'll see how it goes. If I slow down at least I'll have time to know if the food has hit my brain and my stom... Read more

Portions. Need I say more? I really need to rethink my portions. They've been getting larger and larger. I've seen some other 'SUdawg's' blog that had sizes for protein, etc. I know what they should be but I thought I better get back to a litt... Read more

Beverages before Food
Saturday, March 02, 2013      6 comments

I started today:-) trying to drink a cup of tea, have a glass of water, sparkling water, coffee--whatever before I jump to the food. This way I might have a chance at cutting my calories (Duh) or at least relaxing before I tackle the next food i... Read more

Ok, as I go to look for something to wear tonight I think about how many different sizes I have in my closet! My seasonal clothes that 'currently fit' are in the front of the closet. And they're new because I haven't been here before. We'v... Read more
Those 'one day at a time' add up!
Saturday, July 07, 2012      4 comments

Ok, one day at a time seems to add up. Before you know it a whole week has gone by--one day at a time. Whoopie! That feels good. Funny when we use the tools at SP they really work. Used the food/exercise tracking on SP. Geez that really helps. S... Read more

Thursday, July 05, 2012      3 comments

Today: That's all I'm going to think about. Not how many days so far or how many days ahead to get to my goal. Can I do it? How long will it take? How many ways can I calculate my future weight loss? So easy to let the mind go on and on. I'... Read more

Yes, I'm typing away today. Ok I'll come clean. Yes I've been logging my weight the last few weeks (I don't want to totally let my team of Spirited Underdogs down) but I haven't really been on SP at all. Has it been working for me? Not really. I... Read more

Just thinking about what it takes to make healthy choices today. I know that at the end of the day it sure feels good. Can I go beyond the short-sightedness of over eating? Absolutely. I think I'll make a list of the reasons why eating heal... Read more
